They've done such a great job of replicating the original game's artwork; it's really amazing.

Yet some people really think this could be one of those scrapped 3DS projects they moved to the Switch? lol.
Attack animations match with Super Mystery Dungeon. Similar to SwSh/SunMoon. But that's not a bad thing, animations in Super MD were really good I don't think SC could do better than that.

We don't, just a case of enough people repeating vague "leaks" and jumping to conclusions. I've been watching this thread in Era and back on GAF before we all left purely for 3D World info. Everyone swore it was right around the corner since 2017. Still waiting lol.
To be honest 3D World is a no brainer though. They ported... Tokyo Mirage Sessions, which sorry fans of the game, seems to be scientifically designed to be a cult hit, you think they're not going to port a ready to go, 4 player co op Mario game which proportionally nobody played?

It'd be an easy mega hit.

Not saying it isn't coming at some point, we just don't have any idea on when. Like I said, nearly every direct people swear it will be announced. Last Novemeber, it was basically confirmed, hell, even I bought into the hype and believed it. Put me in the camp that believes it will arrive in Switch's final year. I would looooove nothing more to be wrong, as 3D World is one of my favorite games of all time, but that's how I see it playing out. Still nothing credible that hints it's landing soon or even this year at all.

I need to play that Pokémon MD demo.

The game looks so cool.
I was not terribly impressed. I don't know what kind of game it is, but art style aside it felt pretty crude. Pokemon Quest had me more invested within the same timeframe. I'll need to do a bit of reading or watch a quick look of some kind to figure out what the appeal is.

Huh? I feel like recently is only when we started talking about 3D World more. Maybe a little bit before the September direct because Emily mentioned it, but we really didn’t talk about it much before this.

Dude literally said don't tag him. Come on, guys.
I thought he didn’t mind because all of the previous guys who tagged him were asking for new information.

I’m just trying to keep track of what he’s said it’s been pretty confusing because people tell me he’s said “x” and I look through his post history and can’t find where he’s said such thing.

Paper Mario should be coming this year and fans of the series will likely be pleased with the game

Except Emily said at least two more Wii U games are coming this year which "are not difficult to guess". To me 3D World is the easiest guess of all the remaining Wii U games to be ported.

Between the disregard to that request and this being the second time he is asking for the part that is not speculation, mk7t sounds to me like someone on a fishing trip, one of those twitter guys or one of those sites that will then run a story based on this

Or I just happen to like Paper Mario and want to know where the stuff this guy has said is coming from? Relax, please.

breath of the wild 2 gets a name, release date, at the next nintendo direct. it launches with switch revision in the summer, prior to or around e3.

smg2: revealed at e3 2009, release date in february 2010, released in may/june (sorry eu) 2010
botw2: revealed at e3 2019, release date in jan/feb 2020, released in may/june 2020

regarding strategy it's this: do you want to wait and get a new system months from now *or* do you want a shiny new system now, with a brand new awesome game? botw2 will still be on the switch during the holiday season.

super mario game is their major holiday title. it plays better with families during the holiday season and there should be something that's not just a port for mario's 35th year. they treated super mario maker with a good deal of respect as the 30th anniversary game and super mario all-stars and super mario galaxy 2 on wii was their way of doing a 25th anniversary. pretty sure botw would have been given a 30th anniversary treatment on switch had it launched in 2016 as originally planned.

This thread goes through so many pages so fast it's hard to read them all after just a day away, it was fine when the rumour thread was active but that's dead now, couldn't we somehow summarise the rumours of the day/week within the thread? Make it more embedded so the sites can't just flock to it for their clickbait articles.

Still, this thread is the best, and we're about to have a 4th! All about when we think Nintendo might release another advertisement of their products for us to purchase soon after.

EDIT: spelling (and no not rumour Queen's English is best English)

If someone asks not to be tagged, don’t tag them. It’s easy to be overwhelmed by this sort of thing.

We got Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon last March, we're getting Pokémon MD this march. Hopefully next year MD series will return to Dragon Quest, where it started. Give me Sylvando's Adventures Mystery Dungeon, Square!

Also I want:
Persona 5 Mystery Dungeon
Tales of the World Mystery Dungeon
Elder Scrolls Mystery Dungeon
Warcraft Mystery Dungeon
Star Wars Clone Wars Mystery Dungeon
Disney's Mickey Mouse and Friends Mystery Dungeon
Garfield Mystery Dungeon.

Didn't she say it was coming last year as well? It's been hinted at multiple times in the past. So, forgive me if I don't put a whole lot of stock in that statement. There's still Pikmin 3 and Wonderful 101 which have also been heavily hinted at or requested. Could easily be those.

Retrospectively I could’ve done my original policy of compiling hints in a “quote to reveal” block. I dunno, Phendrift can figure it out.

Speaking of which, Phendrift you ready? Post it right at 20k and I’ll request the close.

Pikmin 3 is absolutely one of the two games Emily hinted at (considering that she has openly talked about it before); but she also essentially confirmed The Wonderful 101 isn't one of them.

For the millionth time don't tag insiders if they ask not to be tagged. The mods have asked you not to, that should be enough!

I had thought about that but then the thread would just be spammed with people quoting lol.

and yep! I’m ready to go

Again, relax. You’re misinterpreting me. People tell me he has said “x” and I look through his post history and can’t find it. For example, I can’t find where he said a new game over a PM64 remake but some users here told me he did.

I’m not trying to ask for where his sources come from.

The Zeldas should be interesting

If BotW2 is delayed we may see one or both of them pop up

If it’s on schedule, I think they’ll save that for final year filler

Makes sense that would be annoying, but maybe a bot could compile everything and post it upon request? It would stop people constantly asking for updates to the point of tagging insiders for info when they asked not to be tagged.

Nah she clearly name dropped Pikmin 3 and 3D World last year. TMS, Pikmin 3 and 3D World. TMS is confirmed, Pikmin 3 was supposed to release last year but got delayed internally.

She said TW101 is not happening for the moment.

You guys will see kinda what I’ve done in the OP in a few minutes.

It’s probably not perfect and I’ll take requests for how to fix it, but I do think it helps
1) not put a big spotlight on specific insiders
2) not give free headlines to NintendoSoup etc.
While also being a pretty good and up to date recap

it basically amounts to “trust me or just ask in the thread what you specifically wanna know”
